“We affirm in faith that the Lord walks where you walk, that he journeys at your side,” Cardinal James Michael Harvey said Thursday before a eucharistic procession at Rome’s University of St. Thomas Aquinas, or Angelicum.
An estimated 130 students, faculty, and community members participated in the 22nd annual procession, which was preceded by an exhortation from Harvey in the Church of Sts. Dominic and Sixtus.
Harvey reflected on the Gospel account of Jesus’ appearance as a stranger to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. He focused particularly on how the disciples realized it was Jesus “in the breaking of the bread.”
